Creating a World Without Poverty: Social Business and the Future of Capitalism

5/5/2008; 59 minutes

Revolutionary economist Muhammad Yunus's new book "Creating a World Without Poverty" outlines his vision for an original business model that combines the power of free markets with the quest for a more humane world – and tells the inspiring stories of companies that are doing this work today. Yunus is the founder of Grameen Bank, a pioneer of microcredit – an economic movement that has helped lift millions of families around the word out of poverty – and the author of Banker to the Poor: Micro-lending and the Battle Against World Poverty.
